WBA super lightweight champion Amir Khan (23-1, 17 KOs) punished former IBF champion and currently WBA #3 rated Paulie Malignaggi (27-4, 5 KOs) for eleven rounds on Saturday night in The Theater at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York City. Khan won every round in a one-sided beating, but although outgunned, the game Malignaggi battled on until referee Steve Smoger made a mercy stoppage in the eleventh. Time was 1:25.
In an important collision of super lightweight contenders, WBA #2/WBO #4/IBF #6 Victor Ortiz (27-2-1, 21 KOs) took a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over 38-year-old former lightweight world champion and current WBO #2/WBA #4/IBF #11 Nate Campbell (33-6-1, 25 KOs). Ortiz was credited with a questionable knockdown in round one, but he didn’t need the extra help as he pounded out a clear ten round unanimous decision. Scores were 100-89, 100-89, 99-90.
Unbeaten middleweight destroyer Daniel Jacobs (20-0, 17 KOs) did it again. Jacobs blew away Juan Astorga (14-5-1, 9 KOs), putting him on the deck twice in the first round and twice more in the second round on body shots. The bout was stopped at 1:51 of the second round.
In a clash of unbeaten heavyweights, Kelvin Price (7-0, 4 KOs) won a six round split decision over highly touted Tor Hamer (11-1, 8 KOs). Scores were 58-55 twice for Price and 57-56 for Hamer. Price was credited with scoring a knockdown in the second that may have been a slip.
Amir Khan-conqueror Breidis Prescott (22-2, 19 KOs) scored a third round TKO over Jason Davis (11-7-1, 3 KOs) in a welterweight clash. Davis was down twice after taking a right to the body. The fight was called off after the second knockdown. Time of the stoppage was 1:11. Prescott ended a two-fight losing streak.
Middleweight Dennis Douglin (9-0, 5 KOs) scored a second round KO over Joshua Onyango (13-19-1, 11 KOs). Douglin dropped Onyango twice in the second round. Time was 1:10
In his pro debut, Irish amateur star Jamie Kavanagh (1-0, 1 KO) scored a second round TKO over William Ware (1-3, 1 KO) in a super lightweight clash. Ware was down twice before the stop at 1:39.
